This study draws on the work Nūr al-ḥaqīqah wa-nawr al-ḥadīqah, a treatise on ethics written by ḥusayn b. ʿAbd al-Ṣamad al-ḥārithī extant in two autograph manuscripts, in an effort to explain how the author and his close companion Zayn al-Dīn al-ʿāmilī, two of the most important Twelver Shiʿi jurists of the sixteenth century, were able to obtain appointments as professors of law at Sunni madrasahs under Ottoman control. Evidence from Nūr al-ḥaqīqah, corroborated by information from biographical sources, shows that they obtained these appointments by claiming affiliation with the Shāfiʿī madhhab and presenting themselves as accomplished Shāfiʿī jurists. Their efforts were in fact part of a long and developed tradition of association with the Shāfiʿī madhhab among Twelver Shiʿi scholars.
